Luau Party Invitation {Island Oasis}

This is a possible contender for my daughter’s birthday invitations. The theme is going to be a Luau, and I already found cute child size grass skirts and some other decorations for the party. When I saw this Island Oasis DSP in the Summer Mini, I decided that would be the theme!

The invitation is A2 size, base is Crumb Cake (Kraft). I used the Island Oasis DSP in the green leaf pattern and rose red flower pattern to layer with Whisper White. I stamped the invitation stamp from Introducing in Early Espresso ink and wrote the details with Stampin Write Markers in Rose Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, and Summer Sun. I used the Paper Piercer around the top layer and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

At the bottom, I took a strip of Early Espresso card stock and stamped “You’re Invited” in Versamark, and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. Then, I used the Paper Piercer again along the bottom edge.

The flower is from Fresh Cut Notes. I layered a piece of striped Island Oasis DSP behind it, then trimmed the flower with scissors. In the center, I added a 1/4″ Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brad and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

At the top, I added a short piece of Chocolate Chip 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon, folded in half, attaching it with a staple.

Fall Save the Date–Leaves are Falling

SaveTheDate 017 copy

This is the last of the fall/autumn Save the Date cards I made. It’s probably one of the last few fall cards I’ll be making for the year. Since I already went crazy with Christmas cards last month, I’m hitting a wall so to speak. At least until something new comes along 🙂

The card is rather long and skinny because I toyed with the idea of making it a bookmark. But then I didn’t want to cut off the top by putting a hole for an eyelet and some twine/ribbon so I decided against it. I may rework it to be a bookmark again, I’ll just have to plan better next time.

The base here is more mustard, layered with chocolate chip textured card stock. On top of that, I took a strip of kraft and punched the sides using the Scallop Edge Punch. Then, I rolled it through the Crimper and finally poked holes in each scallop with the paper piercer. That layer is adhered to the base with dimensionals.

On top, I stamped the tree from Season of Friendship in creamy caramel ink, then stamped the leaves in so saffron, pumpkin pie, and tangerine tango. Some leaves were stamped along the bottom as well.

At the top, I stamped “Save the Date” from Introducing in chocolate chip craft ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Down over the tree trunk, I stamped the information from Please Come stamp set, but this could also be printed on the computer just as easily.

Crimped Slide Out Pocket Card Save the Date

This is a fun Save the Date idea for a fall wedding. The crimped kraft card stock reminds me of the coffee sleeves you get at Starbucks!

Using the same technique for my slide out pocket gift card, I modified the design buy making the outer pocket shorter (4 1/2″ x 11″) scored at 6 3/4″ and 2 1/2″. After scoring, I ran the kraft card stock through the crimper, then adhered it with sticky strip. (See my video tutorial for more specific information.)

The window was made using the Modern Label Punch. Then, using the Leaves Awash Jumbo Wheel and chocolate chip ink, I rolled the leaves across the front of the card.

For a monogrammed look, I stamped the “M” from Lovely Letters alphabet in chocolate chip craft ink on very vanilla card stock and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then, I punched out the image with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and layered it with dusty durango punched with the Scallop Circle Punch. That is attached to the pocket card with a dimensional.

For the insert, I took a piece of dusty durango and cut it to 4″ x 4 1/4″. That is layered with very vanilla trimmed to 3 3/4″ x 4″. I stamped “save the date” from Introducing in chocolate chip craft ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. At the top of the insert, I added a 3/4″ chocolate chip circle and then used my cropadile to set a jumbo eyelet. Some hemp twine knotted through the eyelet makes a nice pull.
